51mm Size-The adjustable palm distributor & tamper is designed to work with the 51mm portafilter and espresso machines including: Delonghi pump machine series, Capresso PRO and Breville 800 Series.
Get consistent distribution and pressure every time making it easy to pull your perfect shot right at home, Leveling your grounds before tamping creates a uniform and consistent tamp.
Set your desired tamping depth for consistent tamping pressure every time.
Distributor/Leveler and tamper are designed in one, double sides are available.
Ensure your portafilter basket is fully dosed with coffee grinds to get the right amount of pressure from the tamper for a tighter pack and richer flavor. For best results, groom the top of the basket with a finger or flat edge before leveling and tamping. Brew with good, filtered water.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
STEP 1 - Load your portafilter basket with the desired amount of freshly ground coffee.
STEP 2 - Retract the distributor side to it's shallowest depth, and place the distributor on your portafilter, blade side down.
STEP 3 - Gently spin the distributor until your coffee grounds have been evenly distributed and leveled. If the distributor does not reach the coffee, adjust the depth accordingly. Note: you do not want to be applying heavy pressure to the grounds at this stage -- only enough to level the coffee in the basket.
STEP 4 - Flip the distributor over and extend the tamper (flat side) to its maximum height. Tamp your grounds to your desired pressure.
STEP 5 - For consistent tamping every time, adjust the tamper depth so it matches the depth of the tamp you created in Step 4.
